more Steroid Madness

Wednesday, April 7th, 2004
  • Steroids for Everyone!, Wired Magazine

    “Drugs make athletes better. So why ban them? Let’s regulate instead.”

  • Trainer accused of selling steroids

    What’s significant about this article is that the unnamed suspect placed in the 2002 NPC Emerald Cup, so they go to Elaine Craig, the co-promoter, for a comment:

    “I don’t support the use of drugs, and the majority of bodybuilders don’t,” she said. “It isn’t done freely, and it isn’t mainstream.”

    There are people who choose to cross the line, she added.

    Craig said she would be hard-pressed to take the trophies from the suspect, since she likely couldn’t prove he was using steroids during the competitions.

    What a joke. The Emeral Cup is not a drug tested contest, so they know that most everyone in the contest is on steroids or growth hormone. After all, it is the NPC, where steroids are done freely and are in the mainstream.

    Only five out of the twenty contests on the CraigPro site (covering Washington, Oregon, Utah, and Alaska) are listed as drug tested or has the word “natural” in the title.
